ND: Riots outside the Polytechnic University reveal the government’s tolerance for violence and lawlessness

Νew Democracy accused the government of “tolerating violence and lawlessness” after the riots that took place in the streets outside and near the Athens Polytechnic University which had been closed for several hours.

“All that is taking place with the ‘known-unknown’ individuals outside the Polytechnic reveal the government’s tolerance for violence and lawlessness,” the party said.

“The –euphemistically called – civil protection minister must take responsibility before it is too late. Respect of the laws, which will be an immediate priority for the future government of New Democracy, cannot be scorned by anyone,” it added.
